SISD trustee elected to TASB Legislative Committee

2015 Cynthia Najera Texas Legislature
Socorro Independent School District Board Secretary Cynthia Najera has been elected to represent the Legislative Advisory Council (LAC) on the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Legislative Committee.
 
Najera is one of only four TASB members from the statewide LAC who was elected to serve on the legislative committee, which directly works with the TASB board of directors.
 
She has been one of five school board trustees from Region 19 working on the TASB LAC. The council is responsible for merging the regional priorities identified by school board members around the state into a statewide list of legislative priorities. The council’s recommendations are submitted for adoption to TASB’s Delegate Assembly at the Association’s annual convention in the fall.
 
Najera was elected from more than 200 statewide LAC members to be part of the legislative committee. She will help answer questions from the TASB board of directors about the top legislative priorities that are being recommended for the next legislative session.
 
“I am honored to serve on the legislative committee,” Najera said. “Advocating for our public school districts is a top responsibility and priority for school board members. I am looking forward to the opportunity to serve.”
 
Najera has been on the SISD Board of Trustees since 2010 and completed the Leadership TASB Class of 2015, earning Master Trustee status.
